It is recommended *BUT NOT REQUIRED* to do a world save wipe before switching to a Public Test build.



Q: Do I need a new world?

A: No, if you haven't explored your placeholder Mistlands areas. But it is highly recommended you start a new one because terrain generation has been slightly altered across the board, and you might find your buildings floating and collapsing.


Please be sure to download a backup from FTP using this guide before switching to Public Beta.

To obtain a manual backup of your Valheim server follow the below steps:

  • Stop the game server.
  • Click on the IP/Host link under the FTP Details section of your control panel.
    • This will either open up an FTP view in your current browser or in your preferred FTP client. If you are having issues, please see --> FTP Access.
  • The files you are looking for are the .db and .fwl file and can be found within the worlds folder. The file name will always be GSID.db and GSID.fwl (GSID = Game Server ID number)
    • The below image is what it will look like in WinSCP, in this example the files are 124710.db and 124710.fwl image

  • Once you have located the files simply drag them to your desktop if using an FTP client, if its open in your web browser just click on the links.
